Love is where we come from. Life is finding our way back. I am inspired by spiritual ecstasy, personal evolution and big-hearted communities like this one. I am inspired by feminine leadership, and the power of united women to create Heaven on Earth.

Good morning, finally getting back writting about this project. “The Dialogue Project” is potentially a teaching tool. The format addresses two themes; the planet earth we live on and the spirit of humankind on it. People of all religions know far too little about one another; the installation promotes discussion about our religious beliefs and practiced traditions that we share in common. It aims to provide orientation and to challenge us to think again about the importance of the great religions, the master teachers and philosophers that have had a lasting effect on humankind. The installation, because it is a visual experience, suggests a gentle approach and respect for everyone’s belief system.
By any chance does anyone have any promotion opportunities out there, peace
That sounds like a lot of fun!! I'd be honored to talk with you Erika! Oct. 5th or 8th would be the best days. I've been a huge seeker all my life and I would love to share what I've learned as well as listen to your ideas.. I'm open, interested and ready! ~Robin Wethe Altman http://www.rwethealtman.com
I am leaving for a Sufi Camp in the Ozarks early Oct. 7. So the only dates of those you mention that are possible for me are Oct. 5 & 6. As I mentioned, my work is not exclusively with women. Some of the Sufi gatherings have women's sessions that are very powerful.
I believe in the power of prayer. The dances are really a form of meditation or prayer and they are very important to my spiritual practice.
I am also deeply convinced that we must act towards creating a better world with respect for all people. I am deeply distressed with the violent, hate-mongering rhetoric in our public places today. Peaceful people need to speak up.
Erika. I just noticed your message. I do have a strong practice of prayer but I simply call it life. I think that if that is not prayer then there no such thing. I live a life of singular confidence and devotion, to God. I am a secularist and think that God represents Gods-self without an intermediary. That includes sacred texts, religion or religious persons. I am confident in God alone. Everything alludes to God, to what is true. That includes sacred texts, religion and religious persons. I am a mystic and my experience of God is empirical. Being mystic is not a choice I get to make. It is inescapable, the most dominant feature in my life. My choice has always been; what to do about it.
When I eat I take a moment to be thankful for the people and resources that make it possible. If I have a concern for someone in crisis I am thoughtful. I believe Ascendant Beings and Angels act as intermediaries in all things human. I share my concerns with them. I do not pray in any traditional sense, that I know of, but I am thoughtful in this way. My habit is certainly applicable to any human concern and that includes the concerns of women.
I am always interested in promoting what is best, because I believe in that. If you think we can work together for what is best, seems best, might be best, I am willing to explore that. If my dance with best seems vague it is because what is best is always fluid never fixed. It is what keeps us from falling into the valueless pit of being right.
Erika, I like this response well enough that I will retool it as a blog post. Than you for your interest.
Yes I do!! I "grew out" of an abusive relationship by learning to love myself better and being ok about drawing boundaries. Prayer had a LOT to do with my growth. I found the "God inside me". I go to a sort of "Interfaith" church where we celebrate the fact that all paths lead to Truth and it is important for the individual to choose the one that is honest and consistent with their heart. It doesn't have to be anyone elses path but yours. We honor each other's diversity and celebrate the experience of spirit. I'm an artist and I have started a series of paintings I call paintings "Of women, for women and by a woman". I want to be a part of a movement that honors women and encourages women to create their OWN concept of themselves rather than trying to fit into ones that are created for them (by the media.. by men.. by society etc.....) I'd love to talk on your show!! ~Robin
